A more recently formed work stream, has an initial focus on personal protection for mobile populations in the Mekong, where emerging artemisinin resistance poses the other great threat to global malaria control efforts. The work stream brings together the commercial sector, academia, and national programs to inventory resources, and create common protocols for examining efficacy and community acceptability to adapt repellents and other treated materials that could supplement current vector control tools.
